Waitangi Gourmet Night Market

dylan c

This week as a Waitangi special I’m so honoured to have my very good friend and world class DJ, Dylan C performing with special guest vocalist Nataalia Lunson at the Gourmet Night Market.

For this performance, fans will see Dylan C pick up his guitar along with his records, with a unique blend of part acoustic guitar, part electronic beats, part DJ and part vocals from talented local singer Nataalia Lunson.

Special? I think so. I heard the rehearsal and was blown away…

Not to mention the 50+ food stalls and the fact its a public holiday and the fourth to last Gourmet Night Market.

Come celebrate NZ music, freedom, connection with family & friends this beautiful place we call home.

5.00PM till dark
Friday 6th February 2015
Coronation Park, Mount Maunganui

Only 5 Gourmet Night Markets to go!

Well that happened fast!

Seemingly yesterday we started the season and now we’re past halfway and only have 5 GNM’s to go before we break again for the Autumn, Winter & Spring.

We can confirm we will be back for Earth Hour again this year, collaborating with the Tauranga City Council and the Mauao Performing Arts centre at the end of March.

We have had an incredible run with the weather thus far! Fingers crossed we get 5 more incredible nights in!

We have some very special music coming up over the next 5 weeks, keep your eyes and ears peeled and be sure to check the facebook page for updates.


Have a super week 🙂

2014/15 season of GNM planning underway

We are now fully underway planning the next Gourmet Night Market season.

We have a team of staff & volunteers working on ways we can make it better for you, exciting & new, while still keeping the chilled out summer vibe that we felt last year.

Expect more music, art, sustainability & of course only the best gourmet market food you’ll find.  Local restaurants are already planning their creative menus and of course you’ll find your favourite staples from last year there too.

New this season will be a few non-food stalls, so you can shop to your hearts content, if thats what you’re into.

If you’re keen to join us and become a volunteer then just click here .

If you’re interested in becoming a stallholder then please click here. We are now taking registrations of interest from stallholders. We will send out vendor application forms in August.

Don’t forget you can also sign up to our newsletter as well – just check out the form on the home page 🙂

Exciting times! Bring on Fridays and summertime 🙂

Gourmet Night market – last of the season

This Friday 28 February is the official end to the 2013/14 Gourmet Night Market at Coronation Park, Mt Maunganui.

To celebrate we feel its time to party, to celebrate the fact that the Gourmet Night market has grown into way more than a market, but your weekly community event.

For a touch of class we thought it would be fun to dress up, take that however you like but we, the staff and the vendors will be in our finest black tie and ball dresses and jandals.

And we thought we’d have a wee competition… so the amazing Showcase Jewellers at Bayfair have given us 10! pairs of gorgeous earrings to give away to the best dressed…  We’ll have a wee moment at 7pm where we give these away.

Music is from Nesta Israel, Calista Nelmes & Alice sea… – 3 musicians in one night and a DJ to take you through the evening…
I’d personally like to invite you all to come along and enjoy this (forecasted 26 degree) sunny Friday from 4.30-8.30pm…

This Friday 7th February: Bike to the market


This month is Bikewise month and this week is Bike-to-the-market week!

Polish up that cruiser, add streamers if you like… And let’s see how many bikes we can get to the park.

Music from the incredible Pete Fountain and a range of food stalls to tempt your tastebuds. 

See you from 4.30pm this Friday!
